[NOTE: Long out of print this book occasionally turns up at hydro swap meets or on eBay. It often sells for $100 or more. A word of caution, however. Impressive though the images are (many were taken by the master himself, Bob Carver), the text leaves a lot to be desired. It is rife with factual errors and you should take any history or statistics with a grain of salt. Be that as it may, I wouldn't part with my copy for any amount of money. --LF]
